Weber left 8:08 into January 31’s game against the Winnipeg Jets with an undisclosed injury and was sent back to Vancouver for evaluation, putting his Olympic dreams in jeopardy.
He will join fellow countryman and teammate Raphael Diaz on the team. They will be two of eight NHL players.
There is no word if Weber will play tonight for the Canucks against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
